FARMINGTON, N.M. (AP) - More than 120 elected officials from local Northern Navajo Agency chapters have taken their oaths.

The Farmington Daily Times reports (http://bit.ly/UH8Vlb) that the officials, most from the, northeastern-most of the five agencies of the Navajo Nation, were sworn-in Friday at the Walter Collins Center in Upper Fruitland.

The Northern Navajo Agency includes 20 chapters, or community governments. Officials from chapters outside of the agency also attended, as some of them had missed inaugurations held in their own agency earlier this week.

Newly elected District state Rep. Sharon Clahchischilliage appeared as the keynote speaker. She said the regard for chapter governance has suffered in recent years and needs to return to its once high esteem.
